I wanted to use the "show" signal of the main win of my app to do some
initialization and it seems my handler is not being called at all.
To test it I have made just a window in glade and then tried
glade_xml_signal_autoconnect() and even manual connecting and it
doesn't work. Other signals work (like delete_event), so it's not a

they also don't emit the show signal. I tried calling
gtk_widget_show_all() to see if explicit showing will call the
handlers but it didn't. Then I build the source in glade and there it

Does anyone have any idea what is the problem?

I had this same problem. If the default widget state is set in glade as
Visible=Yes then the callback will not be triggered the first time the
widget is displayed. If you call gtk_widget_hide and then gtk_widget_show
on the widget it should trigger the callback.

Or, as an alternative, set the initial state of the widget's "Visible"
property to "No" inside glade. Then during the GUI initialization in main()
call gtk_widget_show to display the widget and the callback should be
